Jetting Away With It

The charity Possible, that brings people together to help tackle climate change, has just produced a report on private jet flights from the UK. It's quite a shocking read.

Here are the key findings :

  • One in ten flights leaving the UK today is a private jet flight.

  • These flights are up to 20-30 times more polluting than standard flights.

  • Three quarters of private jet flights are paying either no air passenger tax at all, or the same rate of tax as people flying on ordinary flights.

  • Some private jet companies are selling their flights as “guilt-free” and “carbon-neutral”, despite their huge emissions.

If you would like to contact your MP about this topic, Possible have created an easy to use proforma.
